Each year, American expatriate Martha Nathan and her husband, artist Carl Tomas, leave their home in Geneva and travel to the picturesque village of Varigotti, Italy, for vacation. Martha soaks up the peace and tranquility of the beach and luxuriates in the beauty of the Ligurian coast.
On the last night of their vacation, however, Martha has several disturbing dreams that leave her wondering why her past is suddenly invading her present. Puzzling over the dreams' content, Martha fears they might also be premonitory.
Fast-forward to almost a year later as Martha sits in her office, just days before she and Carl leave again for their annual trip. Disturbing news about one of Varigotti's well-known residents reminds Martha of her frightening dreams and makes her wonder which of her other dreams might come true.
Upon arriving in Varigotti, Martha runs into Bjorn, an old acquaintance with whom she's had no contact-save his appearance in one of her troubling dreams. His presence leaves Martha wondering what her subconscious is trying to tell her about her life and the choices she has made.
